[image]MISR Images Forest Fires and Hurricane - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
These images show forest fires raging in Montana and Hurricane Hector swirling in the Pacific. These two unrelated, large-scale examples of nature's fury were captured by the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer(MISR) during a single orbit of NASA's Terra satellite on August 14, 2000. In the left image, huge smoke plumes rise from devastating wildfires in the Bitterroot Mountain Range near the Montana-Idaho border...

[image]MISR Looks at Cape Cod - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
Each year in late November the United States observes the Thanksgiving holiday, commemorating the harvest festival celebrated by the Plymouth colonists and the Native Americans who helped them survive the devastating winter of 1620. Plymouth, Massachusetts, where the Mayflower Pilgrims landed, is located on the west side of Cape Cod Bay, shown in this MISR vertical-viewing (nadir) camera image. This nearly cloud-free picture was acquired on April 13, 2000 during Terra orbit 1708...

[image]Atmospheric Vortices near Guadalupe Island - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
These MISR images from June 11, 2000 (Terra orbit 2569) demonstrate a turbulent atmospheric flow pattern known as the von Karman vortex street. This phenomenon is named after aerodynamicist Theodore von Karman, who theoretically derived the conditions under which it occurs. The alternating double row of vortices can form in the wake of an obstacle, in this instance the eastern Pacific island of Guadalupe...

The three images on the left, from top to bottom, are from the 70-degree forward viewing camera, the vertical-viewing (nadir) camera, and the 70-degree aftward viewing camera. The higher brightness, bluer tinge, and reduced contrast of the oblique views result primarily from scattering of sunlight in the Earth's atmosphere, though some color and brightness variations are also due to differences...

[image]Atmospheric Vortices near Guadalupe Island - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
These MISR images from June 11, 2000 (Terra orbit 2569) demonstrate a turbulent atmospheric flow pattern known as the von Karman vortex street. This phenomenon is named after aerodynamicist Theodore von Karman, who theoretically derived the conditions under which it occurs. The alternating double row of vortices can form in the wake of an obstacle, in this instance the eastern Pacific island of Guadalupe...

[image]MISR Stereo Imaging Distinguishes Smoke from Cloud - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
These views of western Alaska were acquired by MISR on June 25, 2000 during Terra orbit 2775. The images cover an area of about 150 kilometers x 225 kilometers, and have been oriented with north to the left. The left image is from the vertical-viewing(nadir) camera, whereas the right image is a stereo "anaglyph" that combines data from the forward-viewing 45-degree and 60-degree cameras. This image appears three-dimensional when viewed through red/blue glasses with the red filter over the left e...

[image]Summer Turns to Autumn in New England - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
The green hues of summer give way to the reds and browns of autumn in this pair of MISR nadir-camera views acquired on August 26, 2000 (left) and October 20, 2000 (right). The images include eastern Vermont, New Hampshire, and western Maine, as well as the southeastern corner of Quebec province. New Hampshire's White Mountains run roughly north-south through the center of each image. Linear patterns associated with forest clear cuts are apparent in the upper left quadrant of the images...

[image]The Nile - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
This image of the northern portion of the Nile River was captured by MISR's nadir camera on January 30, 2001 (Terra orbit 5956). The Nile is the longest river in the world, extending for about 6700 kilometers from its headwaters in the highlands of eastern Africa. At the apex of the fertile Nile River Delta is the Egyptian capital city of Cairo. To the west are the Great Pyramids of Giza. North of here the Nile branches into two distributaries, the Rosetta to the west and the Damietta to the eas...

[image]MISR Sees the Sierra Nevadas in Stereo - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
These MISR images of the Sierra Nevada mountains near the California-Nevada border were acquired on August 12, 2000 during Terra orbit 3472. On the left is an image from the vertical-viewing (nadir) camera. On the right is a stereo "anaglyph" created using the nadir and 45.6-degree forward-viewing cameras, providing a three-dimensional view of the scene when viewed with red/blue glasses. The red filter should be placed over your left eye...

[image]MISR Views Hurricane Carlotta - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
With winds reaching 155 mph, this year's Hurricane Carlotta became the second strongest eastern Pacific June hurricane on record. These images from MISR show the hurricane on June 21, the day of its peak intensity. The pictures are oriented so that the spacecraft's flight path is from left to right; north is at the left. The top image is a color view from MISR's vertical (nadir) camera, showing Carlotta's location in the eastern Pacific Ocean, about 500 km south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico...

[image]MISR Images Zambia and Botswana - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
These MISR images of Zambia and Botswana, Africa were acquired on August 25, 2000 during Terra orbit 3655. The left image is a "true" color view from the vertical-viewing (nadir) camera. True color means that the images acquired through MISR's red, green, and blue filters, respectively, are displayed as red, green, and blue when creating the digital image. The middle image combines data from the green, red, and near-infrared bands...

[image]Roof of the World and the Abode of Snow - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
The Tibetan Plateau and a portion of the Himalayan Mountain chain are captured in this MISR stereo image from May 14, 2000 (Terra orbit 2153). The image is a composite of data from the instrument's vertical and 46-degree forward cameras, and has been oriented with north at the left. Viewing the image in 3-D requires the use of red/blue glasses with the red filter placed over your left eye. On the left side of this image is the Tibetan Plateau, the highest plateau on Earth and often called the "R...

[image]MISR Sights the Bering Strait - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team.
With the Seward Peninsula of Alaska to the east, and Chukotskiy Poluostrovof Siberia to the west, the Bering Strait separates the United States and the Russian Federation by only 90 kilometers. It is named for Danish explorer Vitus Bering, who spotted the Alaskan mainland in 1741 while leading anexpedition of Russian sailors. This view of the region was captured by MISR's vertical-viewing (nadir) camera on August 18, 2000 during Terra orbit 3562.The boundary between the US and Russia lies betwee...

[image]MISR Looks at Yugoslavia - NASA/GSFC/JPL, MISR Team
These MISR nadir camera images of Yugoslavia were acquired on July 28, 2000 during Terra orbit 3248. On the left is a "true color" (blue, green, red) image. Vegetation, which covers much of the land area, appears green because chlorophyll molecules absorb more blue and red light than green light. An independent method of detecting vegetation is to use the ratio of brightness in the near-infrared, where vegetation is typically bright as a result of reflection from the plants' cell walls, to the b...
